I work (8 months) at a smallish healthcare company, as a SQL Data Analyst, that is transitioning to a technology/product model.
We have around 80 people and 10 in my department.
The issue I'm facing is that I am not invited to certain strategic meetings. (Where 70% of my department goes.)
I've asked a co-worker and his opinion is that I am considered young and inexperienced (Objectively true) and therefore not brought to meetings.
I feel like I can provide value to the team and upset that they seem to not see this.
How can I overcome this barrier?
Note: I have had an experience in the past where I had an emotional outburst. Not yelling or anything, but blocking someone from conversation.
Background: Completed 6month training program followed by 6month internship as helpdesk. Only have a high school diploma. (Graduated 3 1/2 years ago)
Please let me know if I should provide additional details. Thank you all for your time and consideration!
